4) Surprisingly honest. I swapped in some BKP's from my older pups into my guitar and my Ultra sounded vastly different. It's good grounds to work with when trying to hear differences in pickups.
2.) Yeah I really don't want to drop an extra grand on a 100 watt 5150, the 100 watt version would be nice because the rhythm channel and the clean channel share the same EQ in the 50 watt version and the separate EQ would be nice on the 100 watt...but 100 watts is just too damn loud. To get into the power tubes instead of the pre-amp tubes I'd need to play it way too loud. The 50 watt version fixes that, but hey...nothing's perfect right? I just hop 50 watts is enough power.

3.) It was more back to question two...is 50 watts of tube power enough to pump enough juice into AXE-FXii through for bass? I can get bass cabs, so how would the cab sim work with an actual guitar and bass cab?

4.) Great. I love the way the 81 sounds with scooped distortion. Eric Peterson has some awesome tone.

I've gotten so used to the Axe I'd totally forgotten how "samey" the earlier amp modelers made different pickups. It's sort of a curse though; with my GT6 I could make one heavy patch and have it sound relatively consistent among my HB-equipped guitars. Now I have to create patches for each guitar - some will need way more gain, a much higher gate threshold, less bass, etc.

Ahahaha just found this:



Without trying to sound like a total child, I'd love to hear someone 'prefer the tube amp' from some daft reason from those recordings

The quality of amp modelling and tone matching in the Axe2 are just incredible. I'm GAS'ing so hard.. strongly considering a gear shift to make room for a II

To be totally honest, in that video those tone sound super awesome and similar, but I downloaded all of those tonematches and was rather displeased with the tone I was getting from them. He does alot of post EQ and such on those.

However, tonematch is quite impressive. I've done quite a few already.

I have to say the tube amps I've tried recently have been rather underwhelming. They haven't had the same clarity as my Axe settings, I've noodled with an Über, Recto, Mark V, JVM, Series One, all of them have been just a little mushy, not to mention they hide my mistakes haha.

It's mad, every tube amp I've tried I'm finding myself dialling the gain right back to like 2 (out of 10) The axe has changed how I dial in sounds completely, and for the better IMO.

So the axe-fx bug bit me. Im tired of my Pod XT Live and want to move into the big leagues. My main purpose with it will be recording on my PC but I want to be able to jam on it as well. I will have to sell my head and cab and probably a guitar to get a standard.

My question is do you all think a good set of monitors would be loud enough for jamming on with a bass player and just playing in my music room?? I need monitors for proper mixing and recording anyways so if it will be loud enough to jam out on I wont worry about getting an external power amp and trying to keep my cab or get a small cab.

Depends on how loud you plan on jamming. Studio monitors are still pretty loud, so I think you'll be fine. It's more about the monitors than the Axe, though.

Studio monitors are made for a near field listening. Im not sure this would translate well if everyone is spread out in a practice space.

Btw what are the go to studio monitors for axe users under 500$ im trying to snaf some used yamaha hs80m's but they dont come up often

Its gonna be in a room in my house. I have no plans on being in a full band, just one of my old buddies plays bass and we drink and jam sometimes. Otherwise its gonna be for my own personal pleasure and recording.

BTW does the Axe-fx have a USB or do you have to use an interface to record??

Nope only the II has USB. The Ultra and Standard use MIDI. So you need a MIDI interface for those. Having moved from an Ultra to a II, I must say that the improvement is HUGE. The Ultra was already mindblowing but the II takes it to a whole other level!

I was just going to go with a Standard for money reasons. Now that I Know I need the biggest nicest monitors I can afford and a midi interface definitely gonna have to go with the Standard.

Hey guys, I've heard a few people say the sims on the axe 2 on hi gain sound similar, is this true? I'm looking at upgrading from a Peavey 6534+ for a used axe fx 2. Also, If I do go to the `dark side` what would be the best way for me to get that "in your face" sound but still keep the sound guy happy? I'm thinking wedges......

Lukifer, that works too. I used the M Audio Midisport 2x2 with the Ultra, cheap and worked great.

@Alex6534, wedges are great.. or you can check out the other monitor solutions available. another option is that you can run into a poweramp and cab for stage volume. that's what I do. I send my output 1 XLR to the FOH and output 2 to an amp on stage for stage volume. I do also have in ear monitors to hear the feed to the soundboard + other band members as well.

Lol, I sold my 6534+ to get an axe fx II.

Do it man, to me it was so worth it and so much better. The high gain patches can sound drastically different so it works great for me.

Wedges would be best if youre playing live IMO or studio monitors if youre at home alot

When i sold my peavey i hated it, I also did well on it, bought for essentially 1000$, used it for just over a year then sold it for 960$

Im not sure if Im gonna get the MFC though, I could get a Ground control pro and a line 6 G50 wireless for the same price

Also, if you need a 2u rack case, check out the 2u skb wireless mic rack case its deep enough, sturdy, and awesome with lots of storage pouches, and only 130$

Dual Guitars through Axe Fx Ultra

I'm sure this question has been asked and answered, but I need some personal input.

Is there any way to run two guitars simultaneously through an original Axe FX Ultra? The rig is an Axe FX ultra, Rocktron 150watt power amp, and two 4x12 Vaders. Obviously the goal would be to have one guitar coming through each cab.
I know it's possible with the Axe FX II, but trying to figure out a way to work with what I got.

Thanks all

Very easy, all you need to do is plug your second guitar into INPUT 2 (not the right input of input 1) assuming your first is either into the front or into left of input 1 (remember to select 'rear' in I/o menu if you do that) and booths FXL block becomes the source of your second guitar signal. Simply place the FXL block into a patch (not connected to anything relating to guitar 1) and connect it to and amp and cab and then connect the cab all the way to the right. Simply pan the cab for your existing guitar 1 all the way to the left and the cab block for guitar 2 all the way right and you have a side of your power amp for each guitar. Below is a crappy diagram of what the layout should look like

IN]---------Amp1---cab1------------[OUT
] FXL---Amp2---cab2-----------[
] [
] [

Note FXL (guitar 2 in) isn't connected to the main IN at all. Amp 1 and cab 1 are for input 1 guitar, amp2 and cab2 for input 2
